I say I'm a neat freak and in certain cases it's true, but I seriously slack when it comes to jewelry storage. Every so often, I'll come across a piece of jewelry I had completely forgotten I purchased in the first place. Exciting? Yes. Frustrating when I realize it would have been the perfect accessory for a recent outfit? For sure.
My husband and I are moving downtown this upcoming Friday and I have vowed to become better organized. I've rid my closet of all the things I honestly don't wear (through consignment and donations to local charity shops) and I'm starting off by creating new organizational systems instead of throwing everything into the closet and planning to figure it out later. First up? Jewelry.
I've found the above photos while browsing some of my favourite lifestyle and domestic blogs. I really like the idea of picking up a couple clear bracelet displays and having them out on my vanity. They're like little works of art and are pretty easy to find... especially online. I'm also totally in love with the bottom right photo and the idea of displaying certain pieces (probably those I wear slightly less than my favourites) as art on the wall. I'm still looking into how to best make a jewelry-storage frame but I think it would go something along the lines of wrapping a piece of foam in fabric and setting it in a thick black wooden frame. I'm not a huge DIYer, but this is something I'd find patience to do.
Do you have any jewelry organization or storage tips? I'd love to find some new domestic blogs, so feel free to link me to as many as you can think of in a comment. I'd appreciate it, and so would my often neglected jewelry collection.
